Favorite Quote:
"If I can't have love, I'll take sunshine."

Pore by pore,
I've seen the faults
in my skin.
Mirrors shard and
perfect pierces my ears.
When acne speckled
my forehead and my
eyebrows needed a tweeze,
he whispered beautiful. What
is beauty? Another glance
at a reflection, but
I'll never see my eyelids
flutter during REM or watch
the wrinkles around my
lips when I smile.
But he thinks I'm beautiful,
so don't let me ever be perfect.

The author's comments:
This was inspired by the John Green quote "Humans lack good mirrors." I hope that this will make some young girls like me see that they don't have to fit society's perception of perfect.
